chapter  44
Cushing's Way
Pages 3

Imagine you are a third-year medical student in 1920 and you are listening to Harvey Cushing’s clinical lecture on a case of splenic anemia. After discussing the patient who was presented to the students, Cushing begins to oudine what he read before coming to the session. He not only tells the students what he read, but gives a clear description of the nature of the publications and why he selected those par­ ticular items.
